        Prolly a good pairing with Dave the DAC but not as good as Wilson Alexx the loudspeaker.

        There's synergy between Dave and Wilson Alexx, it seems that "they love each other"

        Sometimes, when It's really quiet, I can hear Marv speaking, whispering. He tells me to do terrible things with tubes. He's there in my dreams. My hands turn into legos and everything goes dark to the sound of his laughter.

        Dvorak's melodies are such a treat to listen to. Symphony 7 is great... very Brahms like.

        The ninth (New World) is wonderful. I highly recommend Karel Ancerl's rendition as he gets its tragic element.

        Fournier with Szell as conductor excels at the cello concerto.

        I concur with the fit consensus. One thing that I did to see the difference is I used foam tips and let them expand in my ears. When I took them out I saw my left ear canal was larger than the right. But also when I use foam I don't get channel imbalance.

        I used to really notice CIEM imbalance with chiptune music I made (simple mono tracks of superpositioned simple waveforms with no other processing), verified by panning a sine wave as mentioned above. Coarse-grained test all in all, but comparing all this with another pair of IEMs would put the difference beyond reasonable doubt.

      Is there a general rule of how OI affects BA? Closer to 0 equals more bass, right?(Or is that only w/ Andromeda?) But what about treble?

        I'm really lame, @TomHP Can you help me understand more of what you mean? So w/ the Andromeda, the higher the ohm, the more treble?

        Pretty much, yes. Higher output impedance will give you more treble. It's all about ratios between the output impedance and the device impedance and follows the voltage divider rule. I believe @Marvey made a post about it somewhere with the maths.

        It's pretty straightforward to think of it like this: if you have large impedance swings, higher output impedance will add "EQ" that follows the impedance curve of the headphones.

      Strictly speaking UE4 is closer in tonality to HD600. However; while Andro bass is boosted it has better texture and is less ‘one note’ than UE4. Andro also has more treble presence but in the end it is actually smoother than UE4 which can fall apart in some circumstances. Andro easily out resolves UE4 and has a more expansive soundstage.

        The question for me is Andromeda vs. UE18+. The B-stock price is very tempting.

        That really is the question, now isn't it. The UE18+ gave me my once a year audio shiver when I heard a demo. But the B-stock price is indeed tempting.
